As far as pens go, Bic are pretty iconic and are my pen of choice for scribbling things down in the real world. And every episode of Seinfeld was annotated by Jerry using a Bic. So you have them to thank for that as well. Even though they’ve been around for years, Bic are fully aware of the relentless march of technological innovation and have released the latest evolution in the Bic Cristal – the Cristal Stylus.

The new Cristal Stylus is both a touch screen tool and a pen. The rubber tip stylus is 6 mm, which accoring to Bic is the optimum diameter for pin-point navigation and maximum comfort, allowing it to be operated at multiple angles. At the other end is a classic BIC pen which can write up to 3km, the Bic reliability you know and love.

The Bic Crista Stylus is out now with an RRP of £2.49 from WH Smith, Staples, Ryman, Sainsbury’s, ASDA and Amazon.
